Inspired by Hispanic folklore, legends, and myths from the Iberian Peninsula and
Central and South America, this bold sequel to Charlie Hernández & the League of
Shadows, which Booklist called “a perfect pick for kids who love Rick Riordan” in a
starred review, follows Charlie as he continues on his quest to embrace his morphling

Charlie Hernandez still likes to think of himself as a normal kid. But what’s normal about
being a demon-slaying preteen with an encyclopedic knowledge of Hispanic and Latino
mythology who can partially manifest nearly any animal trait found in nature? Well, not
much. But, Charlie believes he can get used to this new “normal,” because being able to
sprout wings or morph fins is pretty cool.

But there is a downside: it means having to constantly watch his back for La Mano
Peluda’s sinister schemes. And when the leader of La Liga, the Witch Queen Jo herself,
is suddenly kidnapped, Charlie’s sure they’re at it again.

Determined to save the queen and keep La Liga’s alliances intact, Charlie and his good
friend Violet Rey embark on a perilous journey to track down her captors. As Charlie and
Violet are drawn deeper into a world of monstruos and magia they are soon left with
more questions than answers—like, why do they keep hearing rumors of dead men
walking, and why is Charlie suddenly having visions of an ancient evil: a necromancer
priest who’s been dead for more than five centuries?
Charlie’s abuela once told him that when dead men walk, the living run in fear. And
Charlie’s about to learn the truth of that—the hard way.
